The contemporary image of “going to college” has expanded to include many nontraditional students able to enter class through the internet from all time zones, synchronously and asynchronously, connecting to robust course content and engaging diverse faculty and peers. However, as a valuable tool helping millions of learners, it is not problem-free nor is it right for everyone. This address will answer questions relating to the explosive growth in online education, current issues that are being targeted to enhance online learning, defining how online education will be most and least successful and how online education is changing traditional institutions of higher learning.
